Fox contributor: Liberals who reject that men should dominate women are anti-science | The Raw Story

I don’t think it is physically possible to vomit in a volume that would be befitting such garbage.  After reading this article I half-expected to walk outside and see horse and carriages and to be arrested and thrown in the stocks for wearing pants.  Here’s a little gem for your “enjoyment”:

“I’m so used to liberals telling conservatives that they’re anti-science,” Erickson explained. “But liberals who defend this [women being the primary source of income in 40% of American households] and say it is not a bad thing are very anti-science. When you look at biology, when you look at the natural world, the roles of a male and a female in society and in other animals, the male typically is the dominant role. The female, it’s not antithesis, or it’s not competing, it’s a complimentary role.”

Does anyone else’s skin crawl anytime a consie tries fails to use science in an argument ridiculous attempt at bringing the country back 300 years?
